Not this Judge!

I saw the headline on a news site and thought it was about Brett Kavanaugh. Sadly, no.

Fourth Judicial District Court Chief Judge Scott Leehy would not disclose the meaning of recent photos that surfaced on social media of him wearing a red dress by a table of open beer bottles and a poster [...]

The Perfectly Laid Trail I

Seriously, though … here’s one of the better guides to haring and laying trail I’ve seen, courtesy of Hogtown H3 (Toronto, Canada). The original author is unknown, but it was shared with the Half-Mind Weblog by Toronto hasher Rose eh.

Whatabout All the Glutens that Were Released?

Little hashing/bashing pause here while I break in a brand-new knee. So let’s see what’s up in the news.

Oh, just this, from Pennsylvania:

Man dumps a white powder on Catasauqua street and runs, and then…

Ninth Rule of Cooking Club (On-On Gourmet Hash House Harriers)

There are no rules.

Actually, that’s the first (and only) rule of the Hash House Harriers, and it probably should have been the first rule of cooking club. It’s very similar to the second rule of cooking club, which is “If it looks wrong, go with your gut.” As we learned then, and re-learned last [...]
